Duncan Hewitt - Portland Museum of Art

7 Congress Square
Portland, Maine 04101
Phone: (207) 775-6148

          

Jan 22 thru Sep 04, 2016. "Turning Strange" brings together carved wood sculptures from the last 20 years of Maine sculptor Duncan Hewitt's career. Born on Long Island in 1949, Hewitt attended Colby College and later returned to Maine after receiving his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 1975. He taught sculpture at the University of Southern Maine for more than 40 years and has presented his work throughout New England. Although the PMA has included Hewitt's sculptures in two Biennials and two group exhibitions, this installation marks the first large-scale presentation of Hewitt's work at the museum and the sculptor's first major solo exhibition. Spanning the third floor contemporary art gallery, the exhibit introduces new audiences to Hewitt's beautifully formed and enigmatic objects. The exhibit is on view Jan. 22 through Sep. 4, 2016.

Youth Art Month - Portland Museum of Art

7 Congress Square
Portland, Maine 04101
Phone: (207) 775-6148

          

Feb 28 thru Mar 29, 2015. The Portland Museum of Art (PMA) is proud to welcome the annual Youth Art Month exhibition, which features student art from across the state of Maine, back to its galleries. Youth Art Month emphasizes Maine's educational institutions and how they help mold the next generations of the state's artists. The PMA and the Maine Art Education Association have collaborated on this exhibition for more than 20 years now, and this year's edition once more promises more than 100 works of art by K-12 students from all over the state. While Youth Art Month provides significant encouragement to students and well-deserved recognition for educators, the exhibition is for more than just the participating students and their families and teachers. This is an exhibition for the entire community to discover the emerging voices of Maine's youth and to recognize the immense value of arts education in our schools. Youth Art Month is on view February 28 through March 29, 2015. Event #14693 |   Report Update   |   Submit An Event   |   Promote Your Event & Business |   Host & Design Your Website
